Book Review: Supernaturally, Kiersten White

The Plot: Evie finally has the normal life she’s always dreamed about. She’s applying for college, working at a diner, and hanging out with her boyfriend. And she’s really bored. So when Raquel begs her to start working for the IPCA again, she agrees. One mission leads to another, and soon Evie is spending a lot more time with Jack, her cute but unbalanced guide through the faerie paths, than with her friends. Evie finds herself keeping more and more secrets from Lend, and she starts doubting their relationship. Then Reth, her ex, shows up with answers to her questions about her past. But can Evie handle the truth?

Kiersten White is bleeping awesome. (You have to read the book to get that.) Supernaturally is a fun and fast-paced read, a great sequel to Paranormalacy. There are few authors who manage to blend so many paranormal elements without sounding absurd, but White pulls it off beautifully. I did see most of the plot twists coming, but they were still fun and full of interesting details. It’s the little things, like a taser with a nickname, that make me smile. Evie was more emotional, bordering on whiney, in this book. But she is a teenage girl, so it’s believable. Like Evie, I wish we got to spend more time with Lend in Supernaturally, I liked him much better than Jack. All of the main characters are well developed, and I like that we are able to see more than one character struggle with hard choices. I’m looking forward to many more books from Kiersten. And I highly recommend reading her acknowledgement section. It’s great.
